I confess I have had a little bit of a crochet doily obsession as of late.  To prove my point enjoy a  few quick IPad captures:

worked this beauty from a diagram pattern. So excited I finally made the plunge!
The plan is to turn this one into a bowl.   I’ll share when it’s complete.

I almost gave up on this  because I don’t really care for patterns that require breaking off and finishing things separately. Call me crazy but I like to have the freedom to rip stitches if I’m not thrilled with how the pattern is working up……However I loved how this turned out so happy that I hung in there!    Find the free pattern  HERE

in my world these items go together 🙂

 

If you are one of the lucky folks who have a three-day weekend….ENJOY!

I am not one of them.

Peace!

Fresh Off The Hook!

I have a project in mind for all these newly crochet doilies.   Still have a few more to go before I can get started!

My very first attempt at a diagram crochet pattern (with a little twist of my own thrown in for good measure) !
Seriously do not know why I did not try these before!
***Proud moment 🙂

Hope your day is full of sunshine and happiness!

Peace, K

Also working a bit on a few of these beautiful charted doily patterns
Lots of freebies  HERE

I must confess although I am a seasoned crochet-er 😉  I have never attempted chart  patterns!  (I know, right!)

I hate to say that I found them to be a bit intimidating initially.  Silly,  I know!       I think I may actually like these charts better than written patterns because they appear to be more precise.  Sometimes written patterns have errors.     Anywhooo this is my very first attempt at this chart thing.  If things go well  I will eventually share some updates.:)

Do you work from chart patterns?  If so I’d love to hear your theory on this subject.  :]

Happy Sunday Everyone!!!!!

Peace!
